The ancient book about the past holds the future. Frankie is the key.

She doesn’t remember stopping at the used bookstore, but there she stands as if drawn by an unseen force. Anticipation wraps around her like a cocoon. When she opens the door, the wind nudges her through, and expectancy turns to purpose. The man inside, and the book he offers, changes everything. Unusual things happen when she begins to read:

In a time long forgotten, people are held captive by half human creatures. Ashra holds a secret close to her heart, and must discover the purpose of her gift before the oppressed human race is destroyed. An unlikely ally comes to her aid. Strangers bring her a message from a far off land. Ashra and her band of misfits set off in search of answers. Together, they find love, uncover mysteries from the past, face ever present danger, and hone powers they never knew they had.

Frankie and Ashra are separated by millennia, by fiction and reality, but in the end the barrier shatters.

***#NerdGirlEmily’s  Review***
It’s been a long time since I’ve read a fantasy novel, with The Sound of Stones by Beth Hammond being the first in a while. I really enjoyed how the book was written in third person unlike a lot that I have read which were written in first, giving this novel for me an extra edge. From the beginning Hammond used awesome imagery which enabled me to actually see what Frankie was seeing as she walked into the bookstore. Hammond also presented her characters in a way that helped her audience remember without bringing confusion. The book started with Frankie and ended with Frankie, with the in between being filled with the book that Frankie had found in the beginning. The novel ended with a cliffhanger that makes me excited to read the next one to continue the journey. Overall I give this book a four.
